Storyline

Jesse Aarons trained all summer to become the fastest runner in school, so he's very upset when newcomer Leslie Burke outruns him and everyone else. Despite this and other differences, including that she's rich, he's poor, and she's a city girl, he's a country boy, the two become fast friends. Together, they create Terabithia, a land of monsters, trolls, ogres, and giants and rule as king and queen. This friendship helps Jess cope with the tragedy that makes him realize what Leslie taught him. Written by Popdivaprincess3000

Trivia

Josh Hutcherson considers himself to have a horrible singing voice. Regardless, due to the heavy accents of most of the New Zealand extras, the singing was added as ADR (Additional Dialog Recording) in post-production and is listed as "performed by Zooey Deschanel and the Terabithia choir" in the end credits.

Goofs

When the song "Someday" is played in the classroom scenes, Leslie turns to look at Jess and we see her mouth the words "I know there's a better way" and the audio matches. However, when the shot changes back to Jess, he is mouthing words during a rest between lines of the song. See more »

Quotes

Leslie Burke: Write, "Dear Janice..."
Jesse Aarons: You do it.
Leslie Burke: No way. Boys' handwriting sucks. No offense. It's gotta be you.

Crazy Credits

Typo at the ending credits (from 90:38 to 95:11 on the DVD). At 94:13 (where it is mentioned in the actors' commentary), a drawing in the background of a Squogre is labeled "Squorge". See more »

Couldn't Have Done Better
16 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I heard back in August 2006 that they were making the award winning book "Bridge to Terabithia" into a movie, I immediately reread the book. But, it took my only a few hours, and I had months to wait. Today, February 16th, I saw it, and I have a few things all of you might want to know. This movie is very kid friendly, if you are very concerned about what your kids see, then, this might be good. There are a few imaginary "scary" figures, but it's not like a horror movie. The actors did so wonderfully well, it scares me. Josh Hutcherson and AnnaSophia were always favorites of mine, but they surprised me anyway. They played the roles well. It teaches you a lesson, also, and it shows some how to use an imagination. I thought this movie was marvelous, and it deserves to be watched by millions. It couldn't have done better.
